We went here because I read a review on here and what an amazing time we had, the natural beauty of the landscape and the peace and quiet was breathtaking, we walked along the cliff path to lynton and back along the road. We have already decided that our next visit will be a full day as there was plenty of places we didn't explore, once we tore ourselves away to go home we followed the road down into the valley (part of this road is toll road), please be aware that this road needs to be travelled with utmost caution as once you get past lee abbey the width of the road shrinks to just wider than a car so you're speed has to be reduced to a sensible pace, there are pacing places but be aware that there is the possibility of traffic from the other direction but again its well worth it due to the stunning landscapes (drivers please keep you're eyes on the road)

Wow, that was a great cliff walk. We walked along from Lynton, climbed to the top of the highest point, had a cup of tea in the beautiful tea garden and walked back to Lynton again. Bit scary and close to the edge at some points but breathtaking scenery. If you have a sense of adventure you will climb up the biggest rock and glance down at the ant like people below, yes it really is that high. Parking close by for the lazy or more infirm. Oh... and we met some goats too.

The views are stunning, the rocky outcrops are home to feral goats, who cling to the tiniest ledge to get that last blade of grass... The cliff path follows very close to the edge, and climbs the headlands, so for that YOU also need to be sure footed. If you have children or dogs with you, you need to keep them under close control. But it is worth it to see both Exmoor ponies and the goats completely at ease in this environment, and taking no notice of the invading humans. The area has been improved over the past year, with extra carparking, and the cricket ground has a new but traditional, metal railing fence (to keep out the ponies and goats).

The area is wild and beautiful . there is plenty of parking but to enjoy this valley one needs to get out of the car and walk the cliff path may be unsuitable for some to do this but there is still a good view from the car park . there are public toilets and a small cafe . i have visited this area many times before and its beauty always astounds me .

Valley of the rocks is a short (15 minutes) walk from Lynton. The views are outstanding and the close proximity of the footpath to the cliff edge give a real sense of danger; although it is perfectly safe so long as you are being sensible. I would not advise getting too close to the edge as the drop is shear with rocks and waves awaiting below. There are many walkways around the rocky outcrops and some lead down to very quiet beaches. Good stout footwear is recommended as some paths are steep. It is a good place to take young children for WOW factor but they would be safer viewing from inland rather than venturing along the narrow coastal paths. Well worth a visit.
